checked in at manchester airport for the VS085 flight to vegas direct, little over 10 hours, with the plane being full it wasn't long till the plane ran out of alcohol!! yes thats right, the passengers drank the plane dry!!
compared to other virgin lights i have been on, i was disappointed with the entertainment system...to be exact, it was very poor for a virgin flight.
we landed just before 3pm, however another plane arrived before us and the customs queue was huge, but fast... queued for approx 40minutes.
we took a taxi to MGM grand, which cost $24 inc tips...think it was about 21???
by this time it was about 5pm...
we took a quick shower and headed to bellagio to collect our tickets for O
we decided to go to Todai buffet for dinner, upon arriving, mentioning and giving the restaurant.com voucher of $25
the sushi was VERY nice, i have heard todai is only average, but you give this sushi to anyone living in uk (apart from london ) and they will be very pleased
with over 40 selections of freshly rolled sushi, hot side consisted of prime beef...not nice, katsu, tempura, miso clams...all average oh and there was a salad, oyster and crab leg along with desserts and fruit, drinks are bottomless as we say in uk, and on average, was very happy with this meal.
as we booked the 10pm time slot we still had time to waste, so we headed to forum shops... discovered Coach shop and Apple shop... apple had completely sold out of ipads, i asked for a business card anyway
we headed to bellagio, and was seated in the cosy areana. we had seats in section 105 d1 d2
i wouldn't recommend the sections 105, purely because you ARE restricted... we was lucky as we sat a bit back and on the aisle so we got to see most of the show
the performance was amazing, starting off with pre show of getting the audience involved, the show may only be 90 minutes, but it was packed with everything, i do recommend seeing this show and i would go back to see it from another view, as for the wet seats... its splashes.
after the show we headed to the hotel and thats day 1
